Excerpt: I'm not too worried about spoiling the film, due to its age. Chances are you saw it when it came to theaters, or in its 10th anniversary reissue. The Tigger Movie taps into what makes a great children's tale, and that's addressing our deepest fears. When it came time to revisit The Hundred Acre Wood and attempt to coax a bit more out of the supporting characters, writer/director Jun Falkenstein chose wisely to begin with Tigger.
Conclusion: 'The Tigger Movie' is pleasing enough for little ones and will probably keep them busy for an hour or so, but older kids will be bored along with their parents. There just isn't enough substance here for a feature-length story. Tigger is a one-note character for a reason, because his optimistic, bouncy charm works. Trying to add layers to his character feels out of place and never really works in the grand scheme of things.
Conclusion: The Tigger Movie 's Blu-ray debut is quicker and better than expected. It comes close to being the film's definitive release, but drops way too many bonus features to qualify as that. Replace this new DVD here with a superior old one and you'll have a definitive combo pack of your own. Though you might not suspect it, this is a good enough movie to own and not one you need a toddler to even consider seeing.
Summary: Disney has long been one of the more conservative studios when it comes to releasing catalog titles on Blu-ray, especially its classic (and even its not-so-classic) animated films. The reasons are many -- some noble, others shrewd -- but chief among them is the sheer amount of time and level of care the studio invests in the restoration and remastering of its most treasured animated features.
